Born and raised in Newberg, Oregon, I was fortunate enough to grow up on my family's 4th generation farm, located in the heart of wine country. From the beginning I learned what it takes to get results: hard work, support of family, teamwork, and a passion for the work itself. Early in my life that meant dedication to raising 4H animals, playing sports and working on the harvest crews. Through these and other endeavors, a love of the land and the beauty of this area were deeply instilled in me.
In itself, I believe this heritage creates a solid foundation for my career as a Realtor. However, another factor has played a crucial role: I lived with a phenomenal real estate professional as a role model. My mother, Carrie Casey, has been selling real estate in the area for nearly 20 years. I grew up watching and learning from her—not just about the business side of real estate, but about the all-important client side and building personal relationships with her clients. I admired all the time my mom invested in her clients, dealing with them professionally but also treating them as friends. Her genuine approach and the effect it had on others is what inspired me to become a Realtor myself.
Over the years I have come to see first-hand that “buying and selling houses” isn't just a business...it's a service based on relationships. Finding the right home or property for someone has an enormous impact on their lives--whether they are buying their first home or downsizing to their last one. For this reason, I strive to treat each experience as if it were my own. I love the challenge of turning what can appear to be a stressful or confusing situation into one that is gratifying for all involved. My natural positive outlook, knowledge, loyalty and commitment to communication in addition to my long history with real estate are the tools that serve both me and my clients well.
When I am not engaged in the work I love I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, friends, and my French Bulldog, Dolly and spending time working around our family farm. In the summer I love to boat and ride my horse; in winter, I enthusiastically hit the slopes.
As you can see, I love Oregon and all the beauty it has to offer. I would be honored to help you find your own special place in one of the most beautiful states in our country.
